    Surely you can use 5770 with that machine and for that purpose, but generally drivers for mainstream graphic cards are not optimized for 3d applications like Maya etc.

    Also, graphic solutions targeted at 3d applications segment are tweaked (at hardware level) to deliver better performance for such specific needs. Keeping in mind this, you are better off with an FireGL (or competing nVidia alternatives) line of products IMHO. Regards

    I just bought Sapphire Vapor-X version, that comes little overclocked from stock! It was a good deal for the price.

    I've bought this card recently and I disagree with the temperatures. I have a Sapphire Vapor-X that comes a little overclocked (860/1200). And now, at idle, it's 37 ºC. Fully loaded, temperature goes no further than 67 ºC... and I have a piece of crap case! Anyway, I'm loving my 5770!
     
  4. Hi, I'm planning to buy the 'ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB GDDR5' graphics card with the Dell XPS 9100 and all that other stuff,

    I was just wondering if i need an HD capable monitor, or is my 'HP w2207' going to work with it as well???






    Thanks,

    I think generally each 5770 is sold with at least one DVI connector; hence, you should be alright.
     
  6. Nice review, but for those of us who don't waste their lives gaming how about putting it to real world tests that graphic designers and motion graphics artists can use. Like testing it with graphically demanding software (after effects, photoshop, 3d packages and editing software) to see what really shines about cards. There's more to life than WoW.

  7. I have this card and it runs much hotter than the test that you did. I've had it for about a year, so I'm guessing after about a year the card starts wearing out or something. Just while writing this post the fan is running at 49% and the GPU is at 64 degrees Celsius. Close to the stress test temperature you recorded. Under stress, it can reach over 100 degrees Celsius.
     
  8. I have a new ASUS M4N785M motherboard, When I run my ATI radeon HD5770 it pops the the surg supressor built into the motherboard. has anyone had this problem and is there a fix?

    I am planing on upgrading my old compaq system, I got a great deal on a new asus m2n68-am plus motherboard, will this board support a xfx radeon hd5770?
